A Plymouth homeless scheme which restores and recycles household goods is set to open a city centre store.
The not-for-profit community project Resettlement Agency employs 25 people who recycle and renew items of furniture and gives away around £25,000 worth of stock per year to people trying to re-build their lives, is set to open a furniture store in Cornwall Street, Plymouth, with a range of new and second hand furniture and antiques.
Mick Kelly, who set up the project, told thisisplymouth: “We’re currently turning over about £600,000 a year and we’ve never had any funding – we’re excited about expanding this.”
